The perpetual state of chaos in which the world finds itself is nothing more than an evasive but obvious reflection of the human behavior in its most hostile, chaotic and belligerent form. The world is anarchic, chaotic, abysmal and aggressive because we are all anarchic, chaotic, abysmal and aggressive, although we have the inherent tendency to dodge such responsibility, to point out evil only in others, to see defects only in others, to judge and criticize only the others, when in fact we should be the judges and critics of ourselves only, evaluating our most frivolous, inhuman and horrendous attitudes, recognizing our "index of personal malice", doing our best to suppress it to the maximum, since every day we are in a constant battle between our best and our worst possibilities. Personally, I don’t like to avoid any kind of responsibility, but as mere mortals, our innumerable limitations impose daily constraints on ourselves, that weaken our inner struggles against the demanding personal contingencies we have. Nevertheless, being good or evil, benevolent or malignant, is a matter of choice, but it will never be complete, if benignity prevails in a partial way, or motivated by selfish frivolities. The truth is that life is completely devoid of real value or purpose unless we use the gift of our lives to help humans who survive in precarious conditions. After all, life is only worthwhile living when we value the lives of others. Because humans are – overwhelmingly – opaque, obtuse, egocentric, and selfish, they tend to see things under myopic optics, maximizing small problems, and ignoring people who suffer from the realities of terrible adversities. And one of the most severe problems that exist in today's human society – rarely identified and pointed out as such – is neglect, present in various places of the world. Neglect is a passive form of malevolence which, although not directly detrimental, is largely responsible for the various adversities that exist today in the world, being the obvious result short and long-term atrocities, caused by the severe and irreversible precariousness of the human condition, generating the most chaotic, distressing and aggressive forms of despair. The truth is that, as human beings, we are still deficient in practically everything, but admitting this to ourselves is not only difficult, but absolutely impossible, for human rationality can both illuminate and cloud over the most obvious sources of enlightenment. And the most inherent traits of the human character – intransigence, pride, and arrogance – prevents many people in the world from realizing how the precariousness of the human condition negatively affects not only humanity as a whole, but each and every one of us individually. This permanent state of anarchy and desolation, perpetuated in the souls of men, is consumed in an abundance of horrors, frustrations and agonies, darker than the most endless night, and all afflictions of the human condition will become frivolous and wearisome insensibilities, impossible to dissolve. And this can be described as a chronic problem within human society, because we are inherently evil, infamous and grotesque, and we refuse to suppress the inherent malignity that we carry within ourselves. Every human being has an individual share of responsibility concerning possible altruistic actions, but the vast majority of people choose to live only for themselves. Nothing is capable of combating the infallible, infamous, unknowable, and brutal human nature, full of morbid and useless things, such as psychopathy, egocentrism, and selfishness. And then we stop to complain about how bad the world is. And we do absolutely nothing to make it a better place. But of course, I point it out that these are just useless and perishable personal reflections, product of moments in which I have nothing very constructive to do. Chaos, after all, is what makes the world spin, exist, expire, die. So be it.
